News: Open Champagne with a sword

Open Champagne with a sword

Obama's inauguration may have been Tuesday, but why not party to the weekend. Here's a lesson in the Napoleonic art of Champagne sabrage.

Grab a sword and an audience. Slide a sword down the body of the bottle to smash the glass lip of the bottle. The pressure of the cork's explosion propels it outward, glass shards and all. So keep all kids/dogs behind the sabre.

David Glancy of the Professional Culinary Institute is a highly skilled Sommelier. Watch him closely.

Sabrage is not to be taken lightly. It is pretty dangerous. If done incorrectly the bottle can explode. Careful.
